the red ALto brand band works well too.
the key here is the drum area the band applies on MUST be flat. Many used drums are cupped some.
I'd suggest a new drum. The remachined drums are flat , but material was removed to make them flat and I think the drum can warp again easier since it is thinner
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
